There is something about the Aya Sofya -- Hagia Sophia that keeps me coming back for more. Dedicated in the fourth century, the beauty of this enormous structure transcends time and place. One of the main tourists sights on the Istanbul circuit, it never disappoints and is not to be missed. What can I say new here that hasn't been said before...only this, take your time here, watch the light change against the lights, mosaics and halls. It’s such a peaceful place, even though you’re only one of hundreds visiting in a single moment. Take the time and allow yourself to be awe struck. The rest of Istanbul can wait.
